Ever since I started working with my kids with this powerful tool for learning, I knew that they were going places. Daniel Kwan impressed me with the ways that he added features as teachers requested more and more. Whenever there was an issue in the beginnings of the Formative tool, Daniel showed me a cool magic trick that he could see what was happening on my computer all the way from San Francisco or New York.
This was the first tool to let you see students responses in REAL TIME and it enabled you to give feedback in real time either by speech or by writing... who could ask for anything more...

Tip for consumers:
This is the pioneer and gold standard of all formative assessment and learning sites.

I've been using Kahoot for years in both high school and middle school. Also, I used it with teacher training that I have conducted both in the Quiz Mode and in the Survey Mode. I have witnessed the wonderful responsiveness and ever growing value that this great online quiz game offers. At a time when in class clickers were very expensive for the K-12 market, Kahoot was the answer. The kids love it and I have better ways to help them retain the information in it.
They have added different ways to give responses which has made it more engaging for the kids.

Tip for consumers:
Transparent company and listens to users
Try out the free account first and then see if you can get the schoolwide license so that you have more access to features.

Products used:
Kahoot Basic and Kahoot Premium and served as a Beta Tester in the very beginning of its first iteration almost ten years ago now. I have pleased with the improvements.

Many times Kahoot offered Premium for a month for free so that you could see what the benefits were.

In my experience, this sketchy company continues to bill me in spite of canceling and never using my account afterwards. Plus, they don't provide an easy way to contact them to cancel. Bad business practices.

Tip for consumers:
Don't even register for account. You'll be billed forever without a way to cancel. This has been my experience. They will fraudulently employ a forced recurring bill. There is no immediate way to cancel. Only a general *******@powtoon.com and an online ticket form to fill out. Neither sends a confirmation number as is the standard nowadays for any financial transaction.
